Last night was Dispatch Media’s first Travel X Thursday featuring IMPRINTS: Soul on Sole. it’s a travel art installation by Pilipinas Street Plan featuring 30 extraordinary nomads and know the tales behind their favorite travel footwear! It was a blast getting to meet fellow travelers for a while all in one place. The Art installation was really interesting, especially the part where the photos merge with the real life installation. It was also a pleasure to finally meet local author Caloy Libosada of the “26 Days Around the Philippines” fame, that book was a big influence when I started traveling. Sharing a few photos from that evening.
Coffee lovers have a reason to troop to Greenbelt 5, Ayala until next week. The Coffee Origins Exhibit is running at the Gallery Bridge at the 2nd level. I’m not really a coffee enthusiast but it’s a project I’m involved with like last year as the creative guys behind the booth designs used my photos from Lake Sebu, Bacolod and Iloilo on their booth. Check it out.
There are a couple of events in Manila right now that is worth checking out for both the artsy and photographic types out there. Manila Design Week 2009 kick started yesterday at the Fort’s Bonifacio High with a live Public Art Demonstration from popular collective art groups. This is the first Philippine Art Festival that will run a week long with different themes everyday on different venues.
